Kinder Morgan Pipeline Expansion Challenge

/ 97.3 The Eagle

Two advocacy groups are asking for a judicial review of the environmental assessment certificate granted by the province to Kinder Morgan Canada’s 6.8-billion-dollar pipeline project. Democracy Watch and PIPE UP Network want B-C’s Supreme Court to reverse the government’s decision to approve the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion over an alleged conflict of interest between the premier and the project’s proponents. In court documents filed today, the groups say the approval process is tainted by 560-thousand dollars in political donations made to B-C’s Liberal party by Kinder Morgan and oil shippers. They also say that any reasonable, informed and thoughtful person could not help but conclude that the government would have been at least subconsciously affected by the financial contributions.
